Ten highly motivated cadets from the Rockcastle County High School JROTC attended the Junior Cadet Leadership Camp held at the Bluegrass army depot in Richmond Kentucky 26 -30 May 2012. The Cadets participated in activities such as Rappelling, water survival, orienteering, land navigation, Kentucky history, Low and high ropes courses, raiderchallenge and survival skills. The cadets stayed in barracks and experienced a “basic training” type environment filled with barracks inspections, organized physical fitness activities and of course sergeants yelling at them. The cadets experienced a lot of hot weather and blisters but overcame and conquered the elements.
